Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry City will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Swansea City on Matchday 25. The Sky Blues have been producing fine performances in festive fixtures and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to win Friday’s clash. Even though centre-back Liam Kitching misses out through suspension, home win should be considered as Coventry are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
The South Wales outfit, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Southampton, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the home side. All Harrison Ashby, Josh Ginnelly, Nathan Ogbeta, Azeem Abdulai, and Steven Benda should miss out with injuries for the visiting team, while Oliver Cooper is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
Highlighted Team (Coventry):
Nicknamed the Sky Blues, Coventry City are an English football club that compete in the League One. Coventry City, who were founded on August 13, 1883 as Singers FC, wear sky blue kit when playing on home soil, whilst their away colour is white.
Aston Villa and Leicester City are considered the club’s main rivals, but they have rivalry with fellow West Midlands clubs Wallsall and Burton Albion as well. Coventry City have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to go all the way in the FA Cup in the 1986/1987 season, with the team beat Charlton Athletic in the two-legged final. They share stadium with Birmingham City, with both clubs playing their home games at St. Andrew’s Stadium.
Built in December, 1906, St. Andrew’s Stadium can hold up to 29,409 spectators. Dion Dublin is one of the most famous Coventry City players, with the legendary centre-forward scoring 61 goals in 145 appearances for the club in the league.
